Hugo Chavez, Sean Penn, now Jack Ellis (who?) - ultimate idiots

Chavez can now add Macon, GA Mayor Jack Ellis to the ever increasing ranks of his 'leftist idiots' mutual admiration club, along with Sean Penn, Harry Belafonte, Danny Glover and wanna-be celeb Cindy Sheehan.

As we all know, Penn went to Venezuela after a 'journalistic' jaunt to Iraq and Iran because he now fancies himself a journalist! At a meeting, with a fawning Chavez in an auditorium packed with supporters, he was asked to say a few words. Penn told the crowd:

"I came here looking for a great country. I found a great country. I'm also here as a journalist and so I owe it to that medium to wait until I've digested, fact-checked and finished my journey here".
As though we really care what Sean-boy thinks about the paranoid, delusional, narcissistic, power-hungry Chavez and the poor country he's bound to dig into the ground.

At that same meeting, Chavez told the crowd that Washington is


"afraid that the people of the United States will learn the real truth" about the situation in Venezuela, citing his social programs for the poor. "If the people of the United States, those millions and millions of poor people ... if that nation realizes what is truly happening here, there would be a revolution in the United States," eliciting applause from Penn.

Uh, I don't think so Hugo. You won't get a revolution here, che, because people cherish freedom too much. It's a far more important commodity than crude oil. I'd rather personally cut back on my driving than sacrifice that freedom, thank you very much. And as far as we can tell, 'aint nothing great happening over there, buddy.

Anyway, this is what Macon's Mayor Jack Ellis seems enamored of: Hugo's penchant for trying to buy people's love, admiration and loyalty, by taking money etc. he should rightfully be spending on his own people, and spending it in other countries. Ellis recently sent, via courier, a letter of solidarity to Hugo Chavez.

Ellis said ... he sent the proclamation not only in his capacity as mayor of Macon but also as the vice president for tourism for the World Conference of Mayors. "We commend President Chavez for the things he's done in this country," said Ellis, citing Chavez's efforts to subsidize the cost of heating fuel for low income residents of the United States. "We want to work for peace and harmony ... through the mayors of Venezuela." Ellis said he sent the pledge to the South American nation by courier two to three weeks ago. Chavez on Sunday apparently read the proclamation during the weekly broadcast of his public television and radio show, "Alo, Presidente."

(Again with the 8 hour show! Don't people get bored of watching this pudgy vision in red?)

Now, I can understand the desire to work towards peace through diplomacy, that's an honorable and worthy goal, when dealing with rational, sane, human beings, but I'm convinced Chavez and his buddies Ahmadinejad, Mugabe, Kim Jong Il etc. are decidedly not.

What I find even more interesting, than being idiotic enough to send praise to a megalomaniac, is the fact that Mayor Jack Ellis will soon become Hakim Mansour Ellis. Yup. He converted from Christianity to Islam (Sunni Muslim) last December. Once again, those interesting ties between many of the far left and Islam.

Why on earth doesn't Penn stick to being an actor in Hollywood rather than in Venezuela. Cause acting is all it amounts to. He's no journalist and any claim by him to the contrary is an insult to the profession. Chavez is an enemy of liberty! In time the actions of Ellis and co. will draw much criticism, if indeed this has not already begun. I mean really, fancy declaring "solidarity" to Hugo Chavez, someone who has called your President "the devil". Not to mention his comfy relationship with questionable characters like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ...

Also (off topic), thanks for visiting my blog. I have since responded to your comments on my site. Regards Otto.

I rarely cuss but WTF????I did say fish.
Whats wrong with these idiots.Who is this Mayor?Never heard of hima nd I think its a ploy to get people to know him like Ms Cindy sheehan.

Hugo, the lover of democracy that wants to change the constitution so he can continually get re-elected? What's not to love?

The people of Macon are probably thrilled that the mayor cannot run for reelection due to term limits.

I saw this story today and just shook my head. It's getting to be run of the mill, isn't it? This guy is on his way out of office and one of the town council people said he does this kind of thing to get free trips from the foreign elected officials. He loves him some travel.

Right now he is touring Africa. Interesting.

what a bunch of tools!..dang Incog...how surreal is this!

Kate said...

Great find, Incognito. I know I should be surprised at this, but let's be honest: there's a sucker born every minute...

Just for kicks, I think I am going to write Mayor Ellis an e-mail and tell him to whom he is expressing his solidarity...

AI: I guess cos we fancy ourselves more than we are. Chavez and all the libs see themselves as liberators of the poor, but along with that comes conditions and loss of freedom. Crazy.

FRASY: Had never heard of him either, Poo, but he's from your parts.. ;-)

VEGAS AG: Sure, he may be loony but he's a smart idiot. As for the Mayor, that's probably why he's doing it. Nothing to lose.

KAREN: Heh... well, guess it's one way to travel.. on someone elses dime. Guess he wants a freebie to Venezuela? And it was in Africa he converted to ISlam.

ANGEL: Yup.. major tools.

KATE: Great idea m'hija. Let us know what he says, if anything. Saludos back desde Clintonlandia.

I guess I shouldn't be - but I am continually amazed at the idiotic acts and beliefs of some people - reasonably intelligent people (or so I thought)! I think if he and others like him think Chavez is so great - why aren't they moving down there? Why are they staying in their nice comfy homes with good food to eat and all the different amenities offered here?

Because they know deep down this is still the best place in the world to live!

the last thing ego driven man need is more praise. but if he doesn't get it those around him may find themselves without body parts.

The nice thing is I never have to watch a Sean Penn flick ever.

Law and Order Teacher said...

I find it amazing that Chavez continues on his road to totalitarianism and the MSM doesn't say squat. As for Penn his highpoint was in "Fast Times." That was as aware as he has ever been about the world around him. Castro redux.

The Vegas Art Guy said...

Hugo is not stupid, Sean Penn on the other hand? I won't go there. Chavez is going to do to Venezuela what Castro did to Cuba. It will be painful to watch, that's for sure.

I've heard it said that all people can be bought for a price. Ellis proves that some go cheap.

Dee said...

The list of names I would like to call Sean Penn are endless. I never liked him as an actor for various reasons and I will not watch anything he is in, he is the dictionary definition of a traitor to his country.

Anonymous said...

Americans love their freedoms, except when Dee says that they shouldn't. Idiot. What are you afraid Penn might see in Venezuela? Why do you want to lock him up and stick electrodes in his butt? Are you a terrorist?
